    • Resume commentsYou can’t simply list “family” as the contact information. List your Family name and address.Do not mix together a skill (such as work ethic) and an activity such as Choir; keep your skills list limitedto essentials or those skills that relate to your job objectiveIn listing your activities, note if you had any leadership awardsPut your phone number is a punctuated format such as (724) 941-6250 or else indicate that it is aphone number. The reader shouldn’t have to think about the number and decide what it is.Separate the major sections of your resumeGenerally resumes contain bulleted items not whole sentences.The double arrow punctuation mark looks is ineffective. Use bullets instead.Showing your qualities by listing your activities and experiences would be a better way to demonstrateyour qualities rather than a long list of words you choose to describe yourself. Shorten the qualities andlengthen the activities and experience.Saying summa cum laude or similar terms is not enough detail. This might not make sense to a personoutside of our school system. When? Where?Give complete information for your employment or volunteer data: Full name for business, streetaddress, supervisors name, phone, etc.When citing years such as 2010 write the whole year 2010 not 10 Writing Jan 12 for the date can make itlook as though you are describing the 12th day of January.It appears that Career Cruising prompts you to add sophomore or junior to the resume. However, if youlook at this word, it makes no sense to put it there and can cause confusion. You have to evaluate thethings a program tells you to do and determine if it makes sense to do that. In this case, it does not.If I were hiring someone in your field or I were an admission officer for college program, I wouldnt seeanything in your resume that would show me how much you want to pursue this program or how muchyou love the field. Thats what your resume should show. I should see your best qualities.
